Lifetime Hero

Last semester I took up Hist50 a subject which tackled about the life of Jose Rizal. I wondered why every college students must take this subject as part of the curricular. I am a Marketing student and for me it is not necessary to know the life of Jose Rizal, because I can’t make use of it to my work in the future. Everybody knows that history is a boring subject, sometimes in the middle of our discussion we felt asleep because of the topic which we can’t relate. But I come to think of it that if Jose Rizal didn’t sacrifice his life for the sake of Filipino people we can’t achieve independence. I began to know better our national hero and I found out that we must be grateful to him because of his martyrdom we achieve liberty. I initiate that every Filipino must know the life of our national hero.

The life of Jose Rizal was very touching. His life story is a great interpretation of the Philippines tragic history it shows patriotism and heroism.  His intelligence, courage, and belief in peaceful change inspired millions of Filipino. He was the catalyst for revolution, and although not the advocate, still paid the ultimate price. He was a peaceful man and used the power of the pen to express himself. It would eventually lead to his imprisonment and execution. And because of his heroism our country achieved freedom. The sacrifice of Jose Rizal to his country is not easy, he did a lot of struggles just to attain democracy. His love for his country, and his observations of Spanish rule impassioned him to speak out about injustice. The casualty of Jose Rizal ia beautiful death he fell in the ground facing the sky, having his last breath looking at a beautiful sunrise- a metaphor depicting that Rizal did not die in vain. He did not die defeated because his death is the torch. Through his pen, and peaceful protest, he galvanized a nation. He was the catalyst for change, but change was still along time coming. This is the tragedy of a young life, cut short, with so much hope to give. In death there is immortality, Jose Rizal still lives today - in the hearts of million Filipinos.

Less Talk, Less Mistake

I learned something from a friend of mine a quotation from her mind "Less Talk, Less Mistake". It is a four words combined into a thought where my mind think twice to figure out what is the real meaning of it. On my own understanding people should be more sensitive to their words that they utter from their mouth. Sometimes people made mistakes because of the wrong opinion or wrong information that they talked about which can affect arguments to other people. People easily get information anywhere and can freely talk about it to somebody else, but sometimes from the information they gathered they can exaggerate the whole story that leads into a wrong interpretation. Through exaggerating the stories people might interpret it wrong that cause misunderstanding to people. Every person should be aware to their verbal action to lessen false impression.

People are humans that can make mistakes and do wrong things at the same time, but as a human being we should be aware to our moral actions and good ethics. To less talking is to keep private things and never talk about it to other people. We should avoid exaggerating things to bypass misconception. A person who talk less is a person who has a good moral value and knows how to value the truth. It is better to remain silent and find peace, than to talk a lot and blow out of proportion in a wrong way then find troubles and misjudgment.

My Teacher

For thirteen years of journey in my studies, I met a modern hero. That hero is my teacher he has a complexity to his left leg but despite of his disability he tried his best to attend our class though sometimes his left leg is painful. My professor is a smart man he is a man with knowledge and wisdom. He is a teacher with a passionate heart, who always prioritize his students before any thing else. He is my teacher in NS2, a good professor who have a lot of knowledge about Science. The first day I met my teacher I observed his difficulty in class because of his situation, I can feel the pain deep inside but he never care about it. My teacher wants us to learn something from his teaching. He really wants us to know many things about nature and theories on Science. He wants us to ask question after his lecture so that he will answer all the things that we do not understand. 

As a student of him I can consider him as an ideal teacher of today’s generation. He is a teacher with a passion and care to his work. He is willing to teach despite of his condition. For him it is not a hindrance to show his burning desire to teach and share his knowledge to his students. He is a kind of teacher who never gives up in every battle and challenges of life come in, because he believes that his desire to teach is one way of serving God and to his countrymen. I thank God for meeting a very brilliant person like my teacher; he is an inspiration to all the students who know him. Now, I can probably say that a hero is in within a person who has a heart, care, and passion to his life. A person who has mission, vision and goal to what he is doing today.

First Week In School

After a break of sleeping in and doing anything I want on my semestral break, here I am right now holding my pen and books. Upon entering the campus I could sense that this will be another great semester for me. The first day of school can be crazy and tiring but I'm quite excited to meet my classmates and friends again. I have a good schedule on my MWF class while my TTH class were fully loaded. I'm not good in time management, I always went to my class late. But this semester I tried my best to come on time because I want to change my bad attitude. As a student I should be more responsible about managing my schedules in school.

I attended all my minors and major subjects on my first week of school. I have been late in my first period class but I never have an absent yet. First week of school for me is very tiring it is because I had many assignments and requirements to make but its all right because I passed it all on time. I become a responsible student in my first week in school maybe because its a fresh start of the semester. I could say that my brain works so well at the very beginning of the class because its a new beginning of the new chapter of my life in school. It is a good start that I know all my teachers on my first week of school. I got a feeling that my teachers is one of the best, that is why I should be a good student and do my best to excel in the class.
